Hi Manu,

As long as your WS is JAX-RPC conformant you can deploy either type - 
document or rpc-style Web services.

As for the differences between both, there is a long list... Basically 
document-style is far more coarse grained and 
business/document-oriented, also I think this is the future of WS. 
Document-style WS can be used in synchronous and asynchronous scenarios 
as opposed to rpc which only supports synchronous invocations. RPC-style 
is really what the name says - invoking remote procedures. Many 
developers find this style easier to understand.

I find this article quite comprehensive:

Hope this helps.
